Top 7 DIY Babassu Oil Recipes
Top 7 DIY Babassu Oil Recipes (Hair + Skin)
Since I just posted “Top 7 Benefits of Babassu Oil”. I purposely wanted to follow-up with this post sharing my: “Top 7 DIY Babassu Oil Recipes”.
Nutshell explanation – babassu is one of the most versatile carrier oils and can be mixed with almost any other butter/oil etc… Making it a stellar choice for “at-home” mixing kitchen, fun skincare! If you already know all about the greatness that’s inside this light-weight, butter – let’s get right down to blending!
- 1/3 cup Olive Oil
- 2 tbsp Babassu Oil
- 1 tbsp Wheatgerm Oil
- 4 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
- (optional 1 tsp Triphala Powder)
In a glass bowl, mix all ingredients together. Apply oil evenly, to entire head. (I soak the ends of my hair in it + make sure my scalp gets a healthy coating too.) Wrap hair in a head-wrap overnight.
Wash hair in shower as usual the next morning. Triphala Powder is optional but a great choice for hair/scalp (see my article listing “Top 7 Triphala Benefits”)! It’s not the easiest to find. Just skip it, if you don’t have it. Your hair will still be thankful! (Use within 6 months)
Combine all ingredients together in a small glass bowl/jar. Apply a thick amount to scalp at night before bed. (I also wrap my head with a scarf to lock-in all the goodness)
Following morning, wash hair as normal. Not only will your scalp feel better, so will your hair too! Store any leftovers in a sealed, amber, jar. Product spoils in 6 months. Triphala powder is another great add to this mix too if on-hand.
- 1 heaping tbsp Babassu Oil
- 10 drops Rosehip Seed Oil
- 1 tsp Pink Clay (if you have acne prone skin you can also use Green Clay)
- 1 drop Geranium Essential Oil
- (OPTIONAL: extra water if required to make the paste more spreadable…)
Mix all ingredients together in a glass or ceramic bowl (avoid plastic or aluminum.)
Create a paste (if it’s too thick add a little bit of water…) Apply the paste to your face. Leave on for approx. 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse-off and follow-up with your best facial serum to seal in all the goodness. Discard any extra mask in garbage. Don’t pour down drain (clay can clog drains…)
- 1 oz Glass/Amber Dropper Bottle
- Rosehip Seed Oil (fill bottle half way)
- 2 tsp liquified Babassu Oil
- Jojoba Oil (fill remainder of bottle- after pouring rosehip & babassu)
- 3 drops of Lavender + 1 drop Geranium Essential Oil
- Vitamin-E Oil (optional)
Pour ingredients into a glass, dropper bottle (starting with rosehip seed oil, babassu & jojoba. Drop-in essential oils last). Seal and shake well before every use. Apply approx. 3 to 4 drops to your face morning/night. Great for every skin type. Plus loaded with wrinkle blasting benefits! (Use within 6 months)
In a double-boiler pan, over low heat – melt the shea butter until liquified. Remove from heat, add babassu oil. This will also help melt the babassu if it’s still solid. Next, add the avocado oil and lavender essential oil. Continue whisking mixture as it cools over a few hours… After it’s cooled. Transfer to glass, amber jar. (Expires within 6 months)
- ½ cup Chunky Sea Salts (Epsom salt works too)
- 2 tbsp Babassu Oil
- 1 tbsp Sweet Almond Oil (or carrier-oil of choice)
- 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl. Apply + lightly scrub salt mixture over your feet. (I like to leave it on for several minutes, really let it soak-in + get benefits of butters). Rinse-off and moisturize.
Blend all ingredients in a glass bowl using a whisk. Brush a generous amount of oily mix on each of your nails. Let soak for 15 to 20min. before removing any excess oil. Or just rub the extra oil into your hands like a lotion.
CONCLUSION – Top 7 DIY Babassu Oil Recipes
Mixing ain’t easy – but it ain’t that hard! Making your own DIY skincare is easy, way cheaper than paying for equivalent top-shelf brands, and so much better for your body & health.
Starting with just this one oil: BABASSU– after only a few weeks… I was able to create this Top 7 DIY Babassu Oil Recipes. I use this stuff for so many things! Truly an all-around, chameleon oil that plays pretty, all over your skin and hair! Since Babassu can be temperature sensitive like coconut oil (sometimes too hard to work with). To soften the oil fast. Fill a glass bowl with hot water. Place your babassu container in the water. It will heat-up the oil enough to work with.
Buying babasu is also becoming easier lately. For purchasing – check out FromNatureWithLove.com!
